ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Kelly Bouldin Darmofal
Kely is currently a freelance writer, wife, and educator. Despite her 1992 severe closed head injury, she graduated cum laude in Communication from Salem College (2000), later receiving a Masters in Special Education from Salem (2006).
With the publication of books and articles related to TBI in addition to her memoir, Kelly continues to advocate for the TBI of America – especially students. As the first TBI-certified student in her high school, she found educators were unprepared for her disability. She admits the American military and sports organizations are now attempting to address the TBI issue. However, IDEA, or the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, has made TBI a certifiable disability category (in 1990) without assuring appropriate teacher training. She remarks on this “black hole” in education whenever possible and relates her early TBI experiences with hopes of affecting change.
